Some Christmas Cheer

The
Tweed and District Horticultural Society hosted
their annual Christmas potluck dinner on Tuesday December 3, 2013. Beautiful
poinsettia plants were placed on fresh evergreen boughs on the tables. Santa
figurines of every shape and size were displayed among the evergreen boughs
thanks to a member’s large Santa collection.
Besides
being outstanding gardeners, the members also showed their culinary expertise
with the variety of mouth watering dishes….vegetable casseroles, an array of
salads, roast turkey with dressing, gravy and mashed potatoes, devilled eggs,
cheese tray and a veggie platter with dips. 
The dessert table was laden with homemade cookies, pies, cakes and yummy
butter tarts!
After
indulging in the feast, members were invited to relax and watch the video
presentation which highlighted the club’s activities and guest speakers during
2013.  The members thoroughly enjoyed the
video and many thanks to Linda Holmes for creating it!
Poinsettia
plants, a colourful candy wreath and several books were won by lucky members.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and
healthy 2014
